Pros: "I and other passengers of karachi decided that we will never book saudia arabia airline outgoing flight was quit better but inbound flight was worst than ever even saudia arabia refused to give airport meal in 6 hours stay to the people of karachi"
Cons: "Arabia air should fly on time and give same services as western cities to the flight of karachi Bording must be efficient all the girls are bad mannered on boarding counter"
Pros: "Crew is great"
Cons: "Transport through buses to planes sucks big time. They know it. Not sure it'll change anytime soon."
Pros: "The Saudia crew were friendly as they have always been on my flights - regional in the Middle East. They are efficient and will help you out as much as possible"
Cons: "The airline overall is mediocre to good. The seat selection process is a joke. I was assigned a middle seat on the return trip along with my outbound seat selection. I had no idea I even had a seat selection as neither the app nor the site gave me any indication that I even had a seat."
Pros: "Every thing was fantastic"
Pros: "The Saudi planes are relatively new and quiet. The seat pitch in coach is acceptable as there were plenty of empty seats on the flight. They offered free connection for texting apps which is nice to have. The entertainment selection was broad enough, but I did not use."

Cons: "Our baggage left in Jeddah , flight delayed 3 hours because of uncertain reason for us"

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The stop was 7:30 hours and next flight got delayed for another 2 hours since the flight captain didn’t arrive from Jeddah airport.

Pros: "The passenger sitting next to me."

Pros: "Food, cabin crew are very good"
Cons: "Transit in Jeddah..The airport is not organized and the staff too."
Cons: "food on each flight was not the one requested/ Called the customer service and specifically told them that my mom (the traveller) is a vegetarian and while her journey to the US, she did not get any food, had to eat only fruits. They suggested the Hindu meal and i happily agreed, but the exact same thing happened. Hindu meal turned out to be non-vegetarian Indian food! Never ever would travel by this airline again... lesson for life! would bad mouth about this airline whenever I can!"

Cons: "The intro video said laptop charging is available however, the sockets supported only USB charging."

Pros: "Crew members behavior."
Cons: "This airline is not spending enough on customer services . They have low quality food and cheap drinks. My flight from Dhaka to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia was an 6 hour flight during the flight I get hungry and I asked cabin crew members to Have some snakes unfortunately they replied me we dot have any meal we only have some snakes. It was horrible experience for me to stay hungry. I was traveling business class and I asked them to have some drinks but they told me we don’t serve any alcohol. No food No alcohol No good music I will not suggest anyone to board this airline."
Pros: "Staff were friendly, aircraft were clean and comfortable, with the entertainment being as entertaining as it should be. Food was decent and baggage policy is nice and generous. Seats are comfortable with great legroom, and good width and pitch."
Cons: "Transiting at Jeddah (South terminal) on economy class is an AWFUL experience, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. It's just a small block with 6 or 8 gates inside it which is much too small for the amount of people who wait for those flights. It's really difficult to find anywhere to sit and there's no paid lounge in the South terminal. Facilities are very poor with no WiFi and filthy bathrooms. What's more, all parking positions at Jeddah are currently remote gates, so everybody is bussed to the planes. Hopefully this will all change, at least to some degree, when the rebuilt airport opens."
Pros: "Good service and cheaper"
Pros: "Always KUDOS as SAUDIA attendant crew is always smiles and quick excellent service. Pilots always greet on and off the flight, I am sold on Saudia. Take it from me, 3200 flights since 1969 and I still coach-it for the comradery and extra efforts that other airlines forgot a decade ago."
Cons: "Delay at the counter to get the boarding pass. I have checked online and also I had to use the long lane. Moreover, the space between seat rows was too tight and I couldn’t sleep."

Pros: "I would like to thank the staff of Saudia airlines at Dulles airport for helping me make my flight. I was late due to an accident on the highway and I didn't think that I was going to make my flight but the Manger was kind enough to call to the gate and tell them to hold the flight open and that I was coming. Also the TSA agent that rushed me through the line. The staff on the flight was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "I wish the headphones were handed out earlier during the flight."
Cons: "I asked the website to change the destination. The reply came 12 hours before the flight. I couldn't wait so i took another flight and paid for another ticket."

Cons: "As usual, I don’t really like the non-reclining seats on Airasia flights"
Pros: "Nothing. We arrived safe"
Cons: "First of all it left late with no explanation. One hour late. Crew did almost nothing. No food at all unless preordered. Not even awater. Lights out for no reason. It was as t even 7:30 when they dimmed the long guts. Only one bathroom in the back and we never saw someone go forward so we were t sure if there was one in the front. Very tight seats."
Pros: "I will say that the AirAsia crews do save the day. This is my first time flying AirAsia on a 3 leg trip (currently on leg 2) and the crew members have been absolutely awesome and stellar."
Cons: "I’m just a BIG guy so space is my overall complaint. But as my first experience with AirAsia, it has not been a great one. First my initial flight kept being delayed and delayed until it was actually canceled. Then my second leg of my vacation trip, again, delayed and they just had us standing in line waiting to board our flight. Again I give praise to the wonderful crew members for the stellar and comforting service. They truly are the reason I have not given up on AirAsia just yet. Now I do have one leg left, my tip home...I’m hoping that this one will be the overall best experience for my AirAsia. I’m praying for an on time departure, and another wonderful staff and just a tiny bit more leg space. Wish me luck"

Cons: "i hated that there are no human beings in sight. i hate all the machines. i hate that you dont employ people. if you want to give jobs to machines then i what use are you? i would much rather pay more and be greeted by a friendly human face. you are all fools and i will seek other airlines in future"
Cons: "They make you pay for water...WATER"
Pros: "The aircraf was brand new"
Cons: "Flight was DELAYED twice. AK called it re-schedule, but with only 2 hours prior notification, it's purely DELAY. Poor coordination with airport, gate changed without proper notification."
Pros: "Good: cheap and on time. Bad: aways slow check-in and uncomfortable seating. Everything a budget airline should be."
Cons: "Duplicitous and sneaky policies. They tried to scam us out of $175 to check our luggage (it turns out we only should pay $16). Be careful."
Cons: "constant flight delays"
Pros: "Crew was professional, relatively quick boarding"
Cons: "BAGGAGE FEES were OUTRAGEOUS!!"

Pros: "Staff very helpful and knowledgeable... enjoyed my flight! Thank you so much!"

Cons: "Badly managed check-in queue even for online checked passengers doing bag drop - 3 hours before departure at NAIA 3. There was no announcement from airline staff or anyone for that matter at the gate that the plane will be delayed. Plane departed 2 hours late and sitting in the tarmac with poor cooling inside the plane. Badly managed budget airline."
Cons: "No attention to our needs. I booked a wheelchair for my mom from manila to bkk. No wheelchair was provided from malaysia to bkk. I even push my mom in manila airport coz they said they dont have enough staff. My mom had a stroke and she walked all the way in kuala lumpur. What a lousy airline you have"
Pros: "Great boarding arrangement for back seat passengers to board first and follow up with front seat passengers."
Cons: "Cabin crew totally forget their priority task which is to Ensure the comfort of passenger. Instead everyone is so focus on retail as well as F&B add on sales."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Cons: "I was charged over $200 for luggage overweight because I did not purchase it at time of booking. That's disgraceful. They should make it clear for people outside Asia who are not familiar with their policies what they should do to avoid these charges Jackie"
Pros: "Overall not bad the flight left on time and was a good flight."
Cons: "Please be forewarned, pay for your bags ahead of time if you can figure out how. We had a short flight from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and had not paid for our bags. It ended up costing us more for two bags than the flight for the both of us. For that reason alone I would probably not fly with them again unless it was the only option."
Cons: "Everything also must charge, the worst one is even you pay them money they still want to charge extra, seat is the smallest among all airline."
Pros: "Flights were on time."
Cons: "All food and drinks were sold at additional cost, not even small snacks or water included in the price of the flight ticket."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "The seats are so close together one had to sit with legs spread apart and fold out tray hit your chest when opened. Staff spend more time selling AirAsia paraphanila and duty free than attending customers. No water nothing is offered for free. One flight booked had one luggage Free and the next we paid 72americian for 1 small suitcase. No info provided on luggage when booking. Sneaky way to make money. Use Firefly Airlines for a great budget airline"
Cons: "Baggage Fees It seems as if this is not an unusual complaint. Maybe the airline should reconsider their policy in a gesture of customer service rather than an opportunity to deceivingly charge exorbitant fees."
